AS we head towards the Orange City Council election we’ve asked all 88 candidates to tell you a little bit about themselves and their policies.

It is our hope that this information will help you – our readers and this city’s voters – make an informed decision when you go to the polls on Saturday, September 9.

The information we requested from the candidates and the questions we put to them were gathered from our readers and compiled by our journalists. We believe they will give you the clearest possible understanding of where the candidates stand on the issues that matter to you.

The questions address issues such as roads, rates, the Northern Distributor Road, the re-zoning at Orange Airport, what to do with the former Electrolux factory and more.

These profiles were offered to the candidates at no cost, and with no obligation to reply.
